Text vanishing in simulate

I am trying to design a coaster with text. Every time I go to simulate the text vanishes. The simulate progresses as if the text was never there. I am new at this. I haven’t even receive my x-carve in the mail yet. What am I doing wrong?

The most likely thing is the bit size is too big to carve the text in your design. In the simulation, Easel will not show any design elements that would not be able to be carved… what you see is what you get. So if the simulation doesn’t look right, you need to reconsider your design or your tools.

Great information. Thanks
